of rain in the last 12 hours up there in connecticut and massachusetts. we had about 2 inches of rain anywhere from philadelphia all the way down to d.c., including new york city. so the heavy rains have shifted northward but we still have to wait for some of that to drain out of the way. the longer you can wait, the better the roads will get during the day today. the green on the map shows you all the rain. the heaviest is now anywhere from the connecticut/new york border shifting up into maine. notice the rain is completely shut off in washington, d.c. temperatures will be falling too, but not below freezing. i'm not too worried about ice. and the snow side of the storm really underachieved. we were expecting more than this but only got a couple inches in buffalo. it's 29 in cleveland. so there will be slippery roads across the ohio valley and snow near the great lakes. but most of you are used to that. the winds, hold on to the steering wheel with two hands. look at that gust in newport, up to 50. boston at 35. so extreme eastern new england very windy out there right now still. as

our independent line in massachusetts. caller: it is interesting to hear the president's talk about progress. when i hear the word "progress," it reminds me that it is a philosophically loaded term. i am 60 years old and i see the transformation in the values in this country that are no doubt media driven. you can go back to the 70s and it is just shocking to look at shows like little house on the prairie. there was more talent and trauma ,n one hour, incredible writing then you see today. television especially today seems to be run by cools. it reflects the anti-values of media moguls. we see murderers, serial killers all over the place, as if they are next door, left and right, although at the beginning of the programs they say this is fictional. at the same time you see a glorification of the cia, the fbi, and the militarization of the police. this philosophical transformation seems to be a form of social engineering. where it all began, i do not know. think the restu of the world perceives us through the media and entertainment we send out? one of the things that is underestimat

you view it. there's a case in massachusetts where a family had a home. they weren't home at the time. kids and others had a party at their home. they didn't know about it. the question is, should they be liable? the highest court in massachusetts ruled they should not. but there's no question, if you're serving, for example, alcohol at your home or at a place, or at a stadium, you can be responsible for what happens afterwards. what makes this case different is, they weren't serving. this was a parking lot. these kids brought their own booze. so, it was a long shot case that i think the judge probably should have thrown out from the beginning. but the minute it went to a jury, the kraft family was in a tough spot. >> so does this settlement set a precedent? >> the settlement doesn't. but if the case gone to trial, it could have. >>> now to the dramatic rescue caught on tape. a kayaker trapped between two rocks. pinned undera waterfall. his friends racing to free him. abc's john muller has that story for us. >> reporter: a seemingly normal day on the water took a potentially deadly tu
